Rye grain has some big advantages to other grains. I have tried to use buckwheat with the result of the grains sticking together, this makes the mycelium grow slowly and usaly results in contamination. Another big advantage to grain is that you can break it up without too much effort and inoculate more grain.I use this method with jars that I later use to inoculate autoclavable bags with filter patches. As far as Wheat goes I would advise to use wheat tops they work pretty well too. Just keep in mind the optimum water ratio is between 50 and 52%. good luck
I have used white winter wheat quite successfully to grow elm oyster mushroom spawn and according to Stamets, it is equal to rye. Care must be taken that the wheat is precooked to eleminate contamination problems. I think that the white winter type is the best type, if you want to use wheat.
